Yer starting lineup:

Morgan, LF
Sanchez, 2B
McClouth, CF
Doumit, C
Monroe, RF
Hinske, 1B
LaRoche, 3B
Bixler, SS
Ohlendorf, P

I'm interested to see how Ohlendorf does tonight. He was having a nice spring but got lit up in a AAA game last start. Hopefully, it was just a case of playing down to the competition.

Well, I'd say Ohlendorf looked pretty good.

Did not see the game, so I cannot comment on Ohlendorf other than what is contained in the box score. The stats for his start are simply excellent - 6 innings, 0 walks, 0 runs.

Funny how starters who walk 2 batters or less in a start do so much better than those walking 3 or more.

I am rooting for Ohlendorf to lock down the number 4 starter's spot. One more good outing may do it. He is a power arm at the end of the rotation, who is much different than Duke. I am one of those who thinks that throwing 3 straight control lefties, who rely on the sinker/change combination, gives opposing teams an advantage. They see similar styles and can better prepare for and execute against the Bucco pitchers.

Not so with a rotation of Maholm, Snell, Duke, Ohlendorf, and the number 5. No two starters back-to-back are similar. The lefty/righty and power pitcher vs. sinker/change differences are considerable.

No. 9 joins in concurrence.

Snell is a lot of things... a soff tossing lefty is not one of them... LOL
